Thanks, Feisal.  Sorry to have been in limited touch while on 'spring break' in Istanbul.

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Executive Committee, I am delighted to announce that the Milton Society of America has been granted Associate Organization status with the Renaissance Society of America.  This allows the MSA henceforth to submit up to five panels at RSA’s annual conference, beginning in 2015.  We will also hold a seat on the RSA Council, allowing us to participate in its deliberations and decisions.

This new affiliation will in no way alter the activities that we have always conducted at the annual convention of the Modern Language Association, including organizing panels and holding an annual banquet.  But as the MLA seems increasingly reluctant to grant our society more than two panels per year, we have felt that Milton studies must be served by an additional venue.  RSA seemed to us the natural choice as the preeminent national conference in early modern studies, and one that many of our members already attend.

Thus we are writing to call for panels and papers seeking inclusion in the program of the 61st annual meeting of the RSA, to be held in Berlin on 26-28 March 2015 (more information on the Berlin conference is available on the RSA website<http://www.rsa.org/?page=2015Berlin>).  Proposals covering any aspect of Milton studies will be given full consideration, but especially desirable are those related to the following themes:

-Cultural exchange, including but not limited to the Continent
-Periodization (Renaissance, Early Modern, Long Restoration)
-Poetics of materialism

Panels must be organized by a current member of the Milton Society of America.  Required are a 1-2 page description of the panel and a 1-2 page abstract for each of its papers.  The panel organizer and each presenter must also submit curricula vitae of two pages.  Please send all materials by May 31 to Ken Hiltner (hiltner[at]english.ucsb.edu<http://english.ucsb.edu/>).

Papers may be submitted by anyone. Please submit an abstract of 1-2 pages and a curriculum vitae of two pages by May 31 to Ken Hiltner (hiltner[at]english.ucsb.edu<http://english.ucsb.edu/>).

Please be advised that all participants in the Berlin conference must be members of the Renaissance Society of America.
